In indesign 5, I have created several A4 pages after another. However the ruler stretches over the three pages, see picture below, and I would rather see them "restarting" at every page, i.e. ever page should have its own ruler. Is this possible?

I am not sure if what you're asking is possible, but you can try going to Edit> Preferences> Units & Increments and changing the origin from Spread to Page. If not then.. I dunno :)
